Within Teamwork Projects, you can update your status as a way of letting other people know what you're working on, or a quick note of whether you're in office or going to be away from your desk for a while.

Viewing status updates

You can see the status for everyone in the 'Statuses' tab at the top of your screen, next to the 'People' tab:



Status updates can be viewed:

  • In the Overview, showing a card-style view of updates with the most recent on the top left
  • In the Timeline, showing a vertical list of updates with the most recent at the top

Updating your status
 
You can update your status using the button in the top right:

You will be reminded of your last update, and you can add a new one in the text area, with the option to @mention a particular user by name to notify them of your update, or mention @all to send a notification to everyone in your company.

You can also use the switch to notify everyone with one click:


Note: The status feature is only available for people in the owner company and is limited to seven separate lines of text totaling 160 characters.


Requesting a team member's status

You can also request status updates from individual users, in the Overview tab of the Statuses area.

Click the arrow to the bottom right of the user's status card and select the option to request status:


An email will be sent to the user alerting them to the request.
